For some people it’s a dream scenario, the opportunity to discipline your boss. For NFL commissioner Roger Goodell it’s a nightmare scenario.
Goodell works for the NFL owners. He is paid handsomely to do so ($44.2 million in 2012). So, it’s a bit awkward now that the Guardian of the Game, the Keeper of the Crest has to decide whether to crack down on one of the league’s owners, erratic and eccentric Colts owner Jim Irsay, who was arrested in March for driving while impaired in an Indianapolis suburb. Irsay was allegedly so hopped up on pain pills he couldn’t stand up for field sobriety testing and was driving a car loaded with bottles of prescription drugs, according to police in Carmel, Ind.
